Max Howard Sculpture

"In 1965, I began industrial steel welding, learning from my father. At the time I acquired certification, I was the youngest certified welder in North Carolina. I have since discovered that copper is my metal of choice, but I also work with brass, bronze, steel, stainless steel and titanium. Many techniques are used to form my sculptures. I cut, burn, twist, pour, grind, polish, temper, age, hammer, oxidize, roll, brake, hand form, weld and braze at one point or another. Colors and patinas are obtained by the heat of different torches and by oxidation processes. Motion is a very important part of my sculptures. Some sculptures actually move, such as water sculptures with dippers and waterwheels and also hot air balloons that gently sway in a breeze or look as if they’re floating." - Max Howard
